The social housing Green Paper - tell us what you think!

Social housing green paper - big conversation

We've made sure that Nottingham's tenants' voices are heard loud and clear by the Government in the past.

Together, we've got the Government to:    

  • give decent homes funding to Nottingham     
  • scrap their plans for fixed-term tenancies, which would have ended tenancies for life 
  • scrap their plans to force us to sell off larger council houses  
  • scrap their plans to charge some tenants more rent

These are big wins for Nottingham tenants!

Now the Government has come up with new ideas - some of which you helped to shape, which they have published in a social housing Green Paper (a Green Paper is where the Government sets its ideas out for the future and asks people what they think). 

The topics include:

  • ending the stigma of council housing and celebrating our communities   
  • building more council housing (but not in Nottingham - which we want to challenge)  
  • giving tenants more of a voice about the services you receive
  • knowing where to go when things go wrong, and who to turn to    
  • looking at the decent home standard and the safety of your home

As always, the devil will be in the detail...

Tell us what you think!

We want to know what you think about the proposals in the Green Paper, so we can get your voice heard again. 

We held some focus groups with residents at the beginning of October to look at the proposals and get your views. Thank you to everyone who attended. 

In addition, you can fill in the Government's own survey by clicking here

The consultation closes at 11.45pm on Tuesday 6 November.
